After the Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath took a step to ban the illegal sale and consumption of beef in the state, number of Muslim priest (Imam) have come up in the support from various parts of the country. But for many, it is still hard to believe that heads of the prime Sufi shrines (Dargah) in India have urged Muslims to give up beef to “honour the religious sentiments of Hindus”. Ajmer Dargah Head Syed Zainul Abedin Khan is one among such priest who has been sacked by his brother Alaudin Alimi to raise his voice against eating beef and also for the Triple Talaq issue. Syed Zainul Abedin’s brother has declared him ‘non-Muslim’ and declared himself as the next Diwan of Ajmer Dargah.
Syed Zainul Abedin Khan shared his message in the presence of numerous religious heads of various shrines from different parts of the country during 805th annual Urs of Khwaja Moinuddin Chisti in Ajmer.
In his message he urged Muslims to give up eating beef in order to promote communal harmony in the country. He also asked the government to ban the slaughter of all bovine animals as well as the sale of beef, also to declare Cow as the National Animal. He further added that Muslims should take initiative to stay away from slaughter of bovine animals and not consume beef so that a good and positive message could be communicated in the country. He even announced that he and his family members have taken a pledge that they will never have beef for the rest of their lives.
His words on Triple Talaq
Not only for supporting the Government on the Ban of Cow Slaughter he raised his voice. He also talked about the Triple Talaq giving an alternative to the issue saying that there should be a period of 90 days and in between that period there should be a discussion between families, husband and wife to resolve the matter. He added that the discussion should be made also to believe the detailed part of the woman as well and her views should be considered equally.
